Looking at the giant "DO NOT MERGE" on Van_Cleave-85, I understand there is a LNAB issue for the Dutch settlers. In this case there will be a few akas - Van Cleave, Van Cleef and van Cleef.
This DO NOT MERGE was put on the profile in March of 2014. At the time, there were at least three other Isabrant profiles that could have been merged then.
The side effect today is we have profiles like Isabrant's father, Jan (Van_Cleave-84) showing over 40 children. 40! A quick glance and it's clear most should have been merged. Five Benjamins. Six named Cornelius. A handful of Rebeccas, etc. (Van-Cleef-9 and Van-Cleef-51 not only have all the same information, LNAB included, they even have the same profile manager).
I reached out to Steve and understand it is still premature.
Can the project give an update on this problem?
Do we have enough resources focused on this problem?
Does the project share a list of LNAB names that have been settled on so that merges can start?
Can we initiate LNAB questions in discussions on G2G to possibly help speed things along?
Can we discuss options for the future that would avoid these kinds of side effects?
